I turned my first pen but I didn’t have a press to put it together, so I made one. I had a push style clamp and a cut off piece of t track laying around so I took some scrap plywood and a star knob and put it together, it works great.

Looks like a great thing to have if you make a lot of pens. Nice looking construction.
I have made pens for many years but only a few at a time so I just get by using me drill press.
